Re: Hardware DTS decoding

Yes, Eben has appied to become a licensee and repeatedly contacted them. Apparently they have a system in place to license hardware (at time of sale), and to license a piece of software. But they say selling a license key that unlocks the hardware is not something they have done before. They are "l...

Raspbian issue with high CPU and Network usage

Please help, I'm having issues with my Raspberry Pi's when running Raspbian using the installer bootstrap method. When it has heavy CPU and network usage at the same time it appears to freeze for an indeterminate amount of time, maybe 1 min, maybe 12 hours and then the dmesg log get's full of stuff ...

Re: All-in-one computer case

I'd be interested in a case like that too, mine looks a bit too much like spaghetti at the moment. I'd like to see a case that powered the Pi, had 2 powered USB ports min and possibly, a USB to Sata adapter which could mount a 2.5" hdd in. I'm not worried about taking the SD card in and out as once ...

OpenCL

I know this has been asked before but now with this weeks announcement of the Open Source VideoCore driver does this make it possible for someone far more clever than me to port OpenCL over to the RaspberryPi?

I did do a forum search for OpenCL but there were no posts since the announcement.

There are at least 2 people hosting pre-built RPi images. I downloaded from Chris Swan's site. http://blog.thestateofme.com/2012/06/03/openelec-images/ Chris posts the images regularly. OpenELEC is my favourite right now for the Pi. It makes a good media centre, although it is somewhat unstable and...

@anwe79
I thought at least one of those would be what the Camera module sold by RPi would plug in to so might be fairly popular. And I think what I was trying to say previously was LVDS.

Re: Shipping in Envelop or Box ?

I think it\'s more likely that if it comes in a box they may think it\'s been bought and charge import duty, if it comes in an envelope it might just be mail and they can\'t tell as easily (unless it has the shipping manifest on the outside).

I have never heard of anything different.

I was under the impression that the only special arrangement with broadcom was not so much about price but being allowed to buy 10,000 at a time instead of 1,000,000.

Can you write something that sits in the shutdown script or even replace halt with a program that fires something on one of the gpio pins, then use some electronics to kill the power.

Re: DisplayPort?

Our new Dells at work have them, like any new format it will take a bit of time to gain market share. HDMI is quite pervasive at the moment so people are more likely to have spare cables lying around, plus HDMI has Audio as well, i'm not 100% if DP does or not.
